Thanks so much! To be honest, I actually didn’t. I didn’t grow up loving horror movies like a lot of us here at Undead did, but I definitely have grown to appreciate the genre a bit more since working here. I grew up more of a B-movie monster fan – basically every creature feature from Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Hey, I completely understand. Night in this game scares me too. We don’t currently have plans for that, but if it’s something you feel strongly about head on over to our Discord and check out the wish list channel!
Thanks! That’s not really something I can speak to, unfortunately – I’m not sure if we have that on our radar. If it’s something you’re really wanting, please head over to our Discord where we have a wish list channel!
I’m actually not a huge horror fan! Shocking, I know! I do have a ton more respect for the genre now that I’ve been working on zombie-related games for a fair amount of time now. I personally didn’t put anything into State of Decay as an inspiration that didn’t revolve around lovingly crafted test plans. 😉
I was always more of a psychic-type player than electric personally, but I also only played gen 1.
Thanks! And this is a great question. Since I’m the manager of the department, I don’t actually test the game as much as the rest of the department does, but I will say that I really enjoy testing the inner workings of a game using tools. Some of my favorite things were finding out memory usage; i.e. how much “stuff” our game holds, or how certain parts of code interact with the lighting system. That kinda stuff absolutely fascinates me. 🙂
Honestly, if you had told me that I would have laughed you off the face of the planet. Even college-aged me had no idea that it was something I could aspire to. Because of that, I’m extremely grateful for being in this position – I’m happy to have turned my childhood passion into something that pays the bills!
😱 I have a doppelganger!
Fun fact: I actually didn’t get my face scanned when we did the photogrammetry stuff back in the day, so my face does not actually exist in game!
